The poliovirus is an RNA virus that belongs to the Picornaviridae family and to the enterovirus group. The virus causes poliomyelitis (polio).
Human herpes viruses are host-specific viruses from the Herpesviridae family, all of which are pathogenic to humans. In addition to cold sores, this group of infections mainly includes genital herpes, the pathogens of which both remain in their host for life
Human adenoviruses are a group of DNA viruses discovered by Wallace P. Rowe in 1953. The American cancer researcher and virologist isolated the viruses from the tonsils of humans, the so-called adenoids. From this derives
The human herpes virus 6, called HHV-6 for short, belongs to the herpes virus family, which is divided into an alpha, beta and gamma subfamily. HHV-6 belongs to the subfamily of beta herpes viruses, which have a very narrow host range and are themselves
Human papilloma viruses appear in two main forms in humans: As warts on the skin, they are known to be an annoying but rather harmless disease. Viruses transmitted sexually or through other intimate contact are some types of
Polyomaviridae are a group of DNA viruses without a virus envelope, which have a genetic material made of DNA and contain a capsid made up of more than 70 capsomeres. The genus includes, for example, viruses such as the human polyomavirus or the BK and JC virus. Special
Human Herpesvirus 8 (HHV 8) is a virus from the Herpesviridae family. It belongs to the subgroup of gamma herpes viruses. It was discovered in 1994 by virologist Patrick S. Moore and his wife Yuan Chang at Coulumbia University
The phage DNA of temperate bacteriophages is called prophage if it is present in the bacterial host cell. Bacteriophages were discovered by Félix Hubert d’Hérelle in 1917. They are viruses that adapt to specific bacteria
Klebsiella granulomatis is a non-flagellated, gram-negative, rod-shaped bacterium from the enterobacteria family. It lives facultatively anaerobically in the cytoplasm of large, mononuclear cells and is the causative agent of the sexually transmitted disease donovanosis. The
Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the hospital germs. The bacterium mainly damages people who are already in poor health.
The bacterial species Propionibacterium acnes is one of the propionic acid bacteria of the order Actinomycetales and the Actinobacteria division. As commensals, the anaerobes naturally colonize human skin and can be in the form of individual strains
The word alga has negative meanings in the minds of many Europeans: algae plague in the Mediterranean, algae growth in ponds or the eutrophication of water by algae. Slowly but steadily, however, knowledge about the algae is increasing as possible - perhaps
Proteobacteria are a genetic domain from gram-negative bacteria that have hardly any phenological similarities and are characterized by extreme heterogeneity. Many classes of Proteobacteria operate anaerobically photosynthesis for energy or
Leishmanias are human pathogenic protozoa. The parasites spread via two host organisms and change their host between insect and vertebrate. Infection with leishmania leads to leishmaniasis.
Leishmania brasiliensis are small, flagellated protozoa that belong to the Leishmania strain, subgenus Viannia. They live parasitically in macrophages, into which they have phagocytosed without being damaged. You are the cause of the
Leishmania infantum is a small bacterium from the Leishmania family and lives as a parasite obligate intracellularly in macrophages in humans and other vertebrates. In order to maintain its species, the bacterium changes host between sandm
Proteus is the name for a type of bacteria. The microorganisms occur in the intestines of humans and animals and can trigger diseases.
Listeria monocytogenes is a species of bacteria from the Firmicutes division. The germ belongs to the genus Listeria. The generic name Listeria was named after the English surgeon Joseph Lister. The species name Monocytogenes was
Leishmania tropica belong to a large group of flagellated protozoa that live intracellularly in macrophages in skin tissue and require the host switch between sand fly or butterfly mosquito and vertebrates for their distribution. You are the cause
Listeria are commonly found in raw foods like minced meat, raw milk, fish, and salads. These are extremely adaptable bacteria that can be found all over the world and hardly need any nutrients to survive. How resilient
